Finally got a digital camera!For a while I have wanted to make a Krenov style hand plane. I have recently been going more and more into handtools, and wanted to enjoy making the plane, as well as enjoying the feel of a tool sculpted to my hands.I started with the book on the subject, Making and Mastering Wood Planes by David Finck. I’ve been having trouble with my lumberyard finding any decent stock, either Maple, or Beech, or anything else to the size I need. And plus, I’d lik...

Wednesday we used computers to research what our next woodworking project would be. This was due to it being very cold (for Florida) outside – 60 degrees. We used Lumberjocks website as well as buildeazy for ideas. Not only were the students getting familiar with using a web browser, but they were getting excited about finding a project to do. We found 17 ideas and I will narrow the field down to about 3 or 4 based upon 1) what tools we have 2) the skill sets they need to learn 3)...
I’m learning how to create my own inlays. This is my first attempt at creating a fan using sand shading. For those of you who have not done sand shading I have a few tips: 1) Use a cast iron skillet. I found a small one for less than $10 at a local store.2) Use fine grain sand. I found a 40 pound bag at Menards for about $5.00. (Menards is a chain of stores in the mid-west similar to Lowes or Home-Depot. I like Menards better because they carry stuff like 4’x8’ shee...

At least I believe we have identified it. Shopsmiths have a very active user group forum, and the members there have helped me identify which model I have. It seems that my SS is a “Goldie” MK 5 (not MK V) model 500, manufactured somewhere from 1960 to 1963 by Magna Corporation before they went out of business in 1964. Shopsmith Inc. (founded in 1972) still supports the Magna machines. It seems that the clincher in identifying it was this warning label riveted onto the h...
Have you ever started a project, given yourself a budget and a time frame… and then well… you go over budget… and you need that new tool… oh and you got busy, or had to redo something… and well… If you haven’t; welcome to woodworking. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your first project and many more to come. At the start of 2009 I decided I wanted to build a new workbench. I was taking on a new job so I decided 12 months would be a good time fr...
